    I personaly like mutts better but understand the need for pure breeding to keep certain traits at a maximum.[​IMG]

    Very cute [​IMG]


    You sure his mother is a Silkie though? He's got a single comb, pale skin, no crest, and a more refined type body. Silkies, even crosses, wouldn't let those traits pass on.

    I believe that's a Silkie cross. She looks like someone crossed something with Silkie, then took the offspring and bred them to each other to get the recessive Silkied feathering back, but chose a silkie-feathered offspring with the other breed's traits, such as skin color, comb type, and body type. Purebred Silkies have crests, and have nearly blackened purple-hued combs; females have practically no comb, and its of a different shape.


    But, anyway, both mom and dad are just as cute as the son. [​IMG]
